Description: We serve the finest Palmer's Ales and fantastic food with ingredients sourced from the best local producers.Our cliff top terrace comfortably seats 100 and the views are arguably some of the best in the country, if not the world!During the summer months we serve a great selection of fresh fish & shellfish caught from West Bay and Weymouth, and lobsters straight from our beach!In winter, the emphasis changes to hearty stews, slow cooked meats and watching the storm waves crash in with the comfort of our roaring wood burner.So whether you're after a light bite, a full on lunch or dinner, or just a pint or two, then The Anchor Inn at Seatown is the place for you!!

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

What singles out this pub is the view and the specials board, so you can give both your eyes and your stomach a treat! They have a normal pub grub menu too, but the specials are unusual and we've always found them to be beautifully cooked. It is small inside and it does get busy - but it's worth it. The car park over the road charges £3 but you can redeem this from your food tab at the Anchor above a certain value.

“A haven on the coastal path”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Having walked along the coastal path from West Bay the Anchor Inn provided the ideal setting for an lunch. With plenty of seating outside overlooking Chesil Beach the lunch menu was a great mix of snacks and main courses all of excellent quality and quantity. Despite being a sunny and very busy lunchtime service was very good and the staff friendly. Well worth a visit even if you don't fancy the 3 mile walk from West Bay!!

“Lovely watering hole”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

great place to visit during the coastal walk. Plenty of tables outside but due to fantastic location next to beach gets very busy at mealtimes. Good choice of beer and staff always have a smile on their faces. Big car park opposite owned by national trust (i think) and costs a couple of quid. Dog friendly.
